Simple Christmas table waiting for the family to come for Brunch. I made the easy egg bake that you can make the night before. We also have a tea cake and that recipe was from Brook...and I realized that I didn't add enough eggs, and it was still yummy:)
My husband isn't fond of having his picture taken and we both are going to change our eating habits after seeing that pictures don't LIE about our weight....
My Little Family on Christmas morning. :)
Chopper with his gifts, trying to keep them away from the "Boys"....too cute. Chopper has to share all his toys at his house as the other dog that live there takes his toys away from him all the time and destroys them. He is the gentle one in the group. He has a kind heart for a dog. You should see him play with little Jackson Brown....Chopper just lets the little guy bug him and walks away when he is done playing. They also wrestle and no one gets hurt. Chopper lets Jackson "pin" him down. I should take a video of that:)
Kailee and I went to see Santa on Tuesday morning. She had to tell him what she would like for Christmas....she said.."craft stuff and a cooking set". She did get some craft kits, but no cooking set. She didn't seem to mind on Christmas morning that there wasn't a cooking set.
Christmas Eve we go to my husband's side and it's a little crazy for me. He has a large family. His Mom & Dad didn't make it over as FIL wasn't feeling well. We stopped by today and he is feeling much better. He had a little reaction from the meds, not the chemo, yet....we hope.
Christmas morning my kids come over and we have a little brunch, open gifts, then head over to my Mom's where my 2 sister's and their families. We have lunch and then more gifts. This year the adults payed the dice game. We each brought a gift, wrapped and then when you shake a double, you take a gift. When everyone has a gift, you show the others and set the timer and when you get a double you can take someones gift( but they get yours). I got Grinch boxers... and I'll save them for next year's game... :)
For New Year's Eve, we just stay home. My husband goes to bed early as his first job, he has to be there at 4:30AM so he is tired by 8:00 PM. It's fine as I had my "PARTY" days:)
Tomorrow I'm taking down the Christmas tree and putting away all the decorations and get the house back in order. Maybe I'll keep the mantle decorations up for a little longer. I love the white lights on the mantle.
Have a great weekend. Hope to see some of your Christmas celebrations. PEACE, LOVE and JOY.
